Flip them immediately would be my advice (I'm still very novice myself....so take my advice with that waring.) They may still have time to rotate enough in the shell that it wont be an issue. Worse case, what I'm reading is that hatchability drops 12-30 percent. (This is for chicken eggs....so quail may vary.)

Your hatch rate will definitely suffer.
Put them on their side. And turn them 3 times a day until day 14th.
